Iowa producer to install corn oil extraction unit

By | September 08, 2008
Amaizing Energy LLC has agreed to install a corn-oil extraction unit at its 55 MMgy dry-grind, corn-based ethanol plant in Denison, Iowa. The unit will be engineered and constructed by Basehor, Kan.-based Primafuel Solutions. Amaizing Energy chose Primafuel's trademarked SMAART Oil solution because the ethanol plant felt it was the best technology, according to company President and General Manager Alan Jentz. The extraction unit is slated to be operational this winter, at which time Amaizing Energy hopes to begin selling the corn oil to biodiesel producers.
